The youngsters told him there was a 'monkey' in tho bush, pointing to an object which was hying motionless some distance away. To satisfy his curiosity Donovan went over to look at tho object, and was shocked aud sur prised to see the almost lifeless body of a little boy, lying on an ant-heap, covered with ants, and an u-rlv eash in the skull over the risrht oye. Donovan at once took up tho body and carried it to the nearest house, but death soon followed to put an end to tho sufferings of...

OUTSIDE OPINION. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 30 March 1889
OUTSIDE OPINION. Mr. George Mortimer writes : — 'During this week we are to have a conference of 'fruitgrowers' (so they style themselves). May I suggest that one of the first papers read should be, ' How to grow their fruit,' and the next, 'How to handle and pack it.' T-Tmv is it we never see anv first-class pears in the fruit markets ? Such sorts as Marie Louise and AVinter Nelis are worth 20s. per case. There's money in this ; but time is necessary for this class of fruit and supericr cultivation. ' Plant pears for your heirs ' is as true now as it was of old ; but wo must do everything in a hurry here, and where a man should only plant 100 trees he goes in for a thousand — too much land and too many trees, my friends. There ought to be an experimental nursery for tho trial of fruits, so as to find out their names and qualities, and also for young men to learn horticulture in a thorough manner. All thanks to such men as Mr. C. B. Cairnes, of Parra matta, who lias not spared time ...
